Multi Grammy-Award winning group, Manhattan Transfer promises evening of beloved holiday favorites and recent works at the High Point Theatre Nov. 30
The Manhattan Transfer – Cheryl Bentyne, Alan Paul, Janis Siegel and Trist Curless, who stepped into the shoes of the group’s founder, Tim Hauser, after his passing in 2014 – has remained an important part of musical history for over forty years. The legendary quartet has won 10 Grammy Awards of 20 nominations, has been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and continues to wow audiences with live performances throughout the country and the world. With 19 singles and 29 albums over their stellar career, the group is perhaps best known for such classic musical numbers as “Operator,” “Birdland,” “Route 66,” “Boy From New York City,” and “Brasil.” The group has also recorded with an impressive roster of artists including Tony Bennett, Bette Midler, Smokey Robinson, Phil Collins, B.B. King, Chaka Khan, James Taylor and Frankie Valli, and their music has been featured in numerous TV shows and films.
The group will feature their spectacular four-part harmonies, swinging rhythms and jazzy arrangements as they kick off the holiday season with an evening of joyous traditional and not-so-traditional favorites. Delivered with the warmth of a blazing yule log, concert goers can expect a diverse selection of both secular carols and fun seasonal selections, reflective of their two Christmas recordings, The Christmas Album (1992), and An Acapella Christmas (2005). The Manhattan Transfer Holiday Concert will also include visits to some of their best-known hits, such as the sassy ’60s classic “The Boy From New York City,” the jazz standard “Java Jive,” and the gospel-inspired “Operator”.
“The Manhattan Transfer was one of the most exciting groups to ever grace the stage at this Theatre,” says High Point Theatre Director David Briggs. “Natural musical talent, artistic showmanship and audience excitement will guarantee a great time is had by all as we kick off the Holiday season in spectacular fashion.”
